Fordham University is committed to the holistic health and well-being of our students and community. In response to the increasing demand for and utilization of mental health services, Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS) has partnered with Care Solace, a care coordination and referral service, to complement its existing support to students.
The mission of Care Solace is to “calm the chaos of mental health care by ensuring that every student with mental health or substance use challenges quickly connects to quality care matched to their unique needs, regardless of circumstances.”
At no cost to you as a Fordham student, Care Solace’s dedicated “Care Companions” can support you every step of the way by
- Identifying and contacting licensed counselors, therapists and psychiatrists.

- Following up to ensure a good fit with the provider.
